GoPro HD HERO Used On CBS 60 Minutes’ A Relentless Enemy

September 26, 2010 – Over the past couple of months we have noticed the GoPro HD HERO pop up in some videos, TV broadcast coverage and photos of our military troops in action. While jumping from a cliff or charging a 30 foot wave at Mavs is huge – these heros are out there every day in the most extreme conditions. We are stoked and honored that the GoPro HD HERO is out there with them and hope that it helps in some small way with their efforts. GoPro used during this segment on 60 Minutes about the conflict in Afghanistan “A Relentless Enemy”.

The GoPro HD HERO is shown here being used by an embedded photographer in Afghanistan, the image below is from the September, 25th edition of the Wall Street Journal and was also picked up by Gizmodo.

Mark Burnett, five-time Emmy award winner and avid GoPro customer, said in a previous statement, "We have used GoPro cameras in some of our biggest productions, like Survivor and The Bible. GoPro has allowed us to capture and share fascinating new perspectives that previously weren’t possible or were too costly, which in the end makes for better story telling. We are always excited to see what GoPro is working on next."

"In a world of smartphones and increasingly small cameras, GoPro is still the film fans device of choice and the rugged gadget that will launch the careers of many future directors. If in doubt, check out the home made rocket that took a GoPro to space or the shark footage, both on YouTube." - T3 Award for the GoPro HERO3
